Effect of crisis
During 2009, the real estate market of the Crimea were inherent in nation-wide trend. According to the Department of Statistics in the Crimea, in this period the volume of construction works amounted to UAH 1,988,600,000. But it is lower than in 2008 by 37,9%. At the same time in 2009 was commissioned in 387 300 square meters. m, which is only 6,8% less than in 2008. This situation is explained by the fact that the operation Entering the house, the construction of which began in previous years.
The crisis in the construction sector have led to the fact that at the beginning of 2009 was suspended 80% of the implementation of projects. In the II quarter of 2009, some developers have resumed work, but they were slower pace, and deadlines for buildings in the operation postponed. According to the company's "Real Expo, at the beginning of 2010 in the Crimea, there were 178 new buildings, of which 43 were put into operation, 122 were under construction and sales, at 13 construction sites only planned. In this part of the construction, but not sold to housing was 24%.
With regard to individual cities, then according to the Anatolia Shakhnovsky, Director General of the DCO "Cascade" (FA "Emperor"), built in 1971 at Yalta new building, in Sevastopol - 29, in Alushta - 23. The attractiveness of these objects is determined by the location, infrastructure and natural conditions. Among other things erected in Yalta, the following housing estates: "Nikita's Palace", "Laguna", "Gallery", "Brigantine", "Emperor", "Admiralty" and "House of Composers".
Crisis affected all the players of the Crimean real estate market. But G. Lodgers sure that this natural selection was simply necessary. Pre-crisis market was saturated in Yalta "bubbles" - projects whose only asset was land. Their concept is unreasonable and, as a consequence, the lack of sales led to stop the construction. No price reduction is not able to block the financial risks of investing in projects in progress. The crisis has removed from the market of speculators selling air, and sobered buyers. It turned out that in reality projects with stable funding from its own funds or credit is almost there. So, along with falling demand and the market shows limited supply. Although in terms of reliability it is quite another suggestion.
According to G. Zhil'tsova, about 60% of residential complexes YUBK not completed by the beginning of the crisis is still not finished. The works are either not conducted at all or are periods when it is possible to raise funds buyers. Developers who invest their own money or credit, very little. Therefore, the complexes, which will be commissioned in 2010-2011, a little - it "Nikita Palace", "Brigantine", "House of Composers" and the house of "console" on the street. Tauris in Yalta.
L. Safronov notes that today in the Big Yalta (from Partenit to Mishor) are constructed mainly apartment buildings and apartment complexes. The crisis dates for many of the objects moved an average of one year in advance. However, the real estate market in the Crimea shows a steady growth both in terms of demand, and in respect of cost. According to Alexei Bologov, manager of LLC "Domus" (SC "Southern Palmira"), consumer interest in the objects in the Crimea has increased by 40-45% compared to the 2008-2009 years.
K. Savinov also captures the resumption of demand for real estate South Coast. According to experts, demand depends on the characteristics of the object and literacy pricing. A noticeable influence and seasonal resort activities. At prices substantially affected by the crisis and policies. Some developers have reduced the cost, others carry the action and make discounts. Thanks to these measures, the market grew, even in difficult periods
